Great home to entertain and enjoy all Martin County has to offer!
Vacation in a fisherman's paradise: Stuart/Port Salerno, Florida; 'The Sailfish Capital of the World!'
This comfortable 3 bedroom/2 bath home is located in much sought after neighborhood of Rocky Point. Only minutes away from Port Salerno, Stuart, the St. Lucie River, intracoastal waters, beaches, and the Gulf it's a safe, lovely community.
A large swimming pool with screened lanai, patio furniture, and grill provides ample room for entertaining or just relaxing. The back yard is fenced on three sides (we have a portable fence for the 4th side) and landscaped with tropical palms.
Indoors, vibrant decor and furniture follows a 'sleepy Old-Florida' theme: think bright, seaside colors; crisp, white linen formal furniture and casual rattan furniture; and, beautiful artwork accents all.
Three bedrooms (two king size beds, two twins) sleep six guests comfortably. Two bathrooms (one with shower, one with shower/tub); linens provided. Master closet is locked but ample closet space is found in other two bedrooms.
Kitchen completely remodeled winter 2017. New stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, white cabinets, travertine tile floor. Storage pantry, electric range and oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans and all cooking utinsels, dishware, glassware, coffeemaker, toaster, towels, and cleaning supplies. Adjacent brand new HE washer and dryer with detergent provided.
There is a formal dining area and formal sitting/television room along with an informal dining room and casual tv/sitting room. Cable television and internet service is available. New carpet installed winter 2017.
Two bicycles and two kayaks are available for use (you'll need a large enough car to transport the kayaks as we are close to the water but not on it).
The fishing village of Port Salerno is very close by; go sailing, boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, shop at specialty shops, peruse art galleries, or dine at great on-water seafood restaurants with festive happy hours!
The small city of Stuart is just a handful of miles north. It offers more great shopping (lots of antiques), restaurants, and scenic views. The Lyric Theatre provides world-class live entertainment. Or, drive across the bridge to upscale Hutchinson Island to check out the million dollar mansions.
Martin County, with a building height restriction of 4-stories, is a rare jewel along the south east coast. Come check out this extraordinarily beautiful paradise.
Private pilots can fly into Witham Field (a couple of miles away). Commercial airlines fly into West Palm Beach airport, 40 minutes away. Orlando is around two hours north.
No smoking. Small, clean, well behaved pets are welcome.
Pool does NOT have a barrier/fence around it so children over five years old are probably best.
Property managed by owners' friends who live nearby and are available to answer questions or provide recommendations for local fishing guides, attractions, etc.

Home was very nice. Owners left it very "lived in" especially master bedroom and bath.
Master mattress needs to be replaced.
Had to clean cat hair off furniture in living area.
Neighborhood really nice. Location very relaxing. Restaurants nice.
Overall good week
Thank you for staying at the rental and providing a review.
I did want to mention that the master mattress is relatively new. I wish you would have mentioned that you were having difficulty sleeping on it. It is a softer mattress (opposed to a really firm mattress--per the owners' preferences) but you are the first guest to ever complain about it.
Simply by taking off the "extra-cushy" mattress pad or switching to one of the other beds may have helped.
As for the cat hair, we did not realize you had a cat allergy until you arrived; I wish you would have said something before booking to avoid that problem. We try to keep the home as neat and clean as possible, but, when pets are allowed there is inevitably going to be hair and dander. Perhaps you should look for pet-free lodgings for your future reservations.
Quiet neighborhood, big house!
Enjoyed the location, the pool, the relaxing lounge areas, the grill, the patio, the TV selection, the comfortable beds...perfect for families, lots of space. Easy to get to the Port Salerno hot spots, park, fishing, shopping and Stuart. We hope to come back and stay here again...
Glad you enjoyed your visit, Pam. You & your family were wonderful guests and you're welcome back anytime! Safe travels, Patricia
We had a great week at this lovely home which is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood. The people who look after it for the owners were great and the house had everything we needed. If we are ever in the area again and in need of a place to stay, we will definitely stay there again. Thanks!!
Very comfortable pool home close to restaurants.

There's No Place Like Home!
I travel often for work and recreation. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to select this property for a short recreational fishing trip with three buddies. The location is perfect for boating, fishing, diving enthusiasts. Close to quality launching facilities and some great spots for night time flare. The house was perfect for our short adventure and would highly recommend. We spent most of our time on the water but upon returning, found ourselves gravitating to the Florida room adjacent the pool area. Look forward to returning and staying longer.
Visiting some family in Stuart!
This house was great. The layout was very nice. Loved the back living room that connected to the screened in patio/pool area! Loved the screened in pool. Bathrooms were nice; the one with the tub could use some updating. Appreciated the fact that there was a washer and dryer. Was nice to have the little water cooler, too. Kitchen had everything we needed. This house was as close to perfect as you will get. The neighborhood was nice; enjoyed the park on the water with the nice boardwalk. It was close to everything but it wasn’t a big touristy area (which was awesome). Would definitely recommend the house! Hopefully, we will be able to rent it again sometime.
